2 Bedroom, 2 1/2 bathrooms apartment with Mountain Views in the heart of Quito

Located in the heart of Quito, this beautiful 1238 squared feet non-smoking apartment is a quiet oasis and only blocks away from fantastic restaurants, cafes, popular bars, shopping and tourism.

Its’ central location makes it very easy to get around the city and it’s a great location for day trips, including:

Mind Cloud Forest, Middle of the World, Otavalo Market, Papallacta (Hot Springs), El Centro de Quito , El Panecillo.

It is also located only five minutes away from Plaza Foch, the best place for night life in Quito. You will not be disappointed with the variety of restaurants, lounges and bars in the area.

The apartment is 2 blocks from the Mercado Artisanal, the perfect place to buy gifts or something for yourself, we always recommend negotiating the prices and have fun bargaining with the Mercado merchants.

General Overview:

- The apartment building has private guards 24/7, with surveillance cameras and is gated.

- It is located one block from the police station, entre 6 de Diciembre y 12 de Octubre, en la Mariscal.

- It has central gas for the water heater, so you have hot water 24/7 without the need to preheat the tank before you take a shower (unlike most of the buildings in Ecuador.

The apartment is fully furnished and loaded with amenities.

Electronics include 3 flat screen TV's (one large one in the living room and one in each master room), Blu-ray DVD player with streaming and internet access/Wifi is provided throughout the entire apartment.

Living room area features a 1/2 bathroom.

The entire apartment building was just recently completed and everything in the apartment is brand new. Modern décor is featured throughout the apartment with new hardwood floors, tile, and granite countertops. A private patio provides a nice view of the city and surrounding area.

Conveniently located one block from de 6 de December where public transportation is a breeze - you can hop on a bus to go anywhere in Quito or just take a taxi. On the same street you'll find a pharmacy, banks, and 2 blocks and plenty of shopping – all just a few steps away.

One more block away you will find of popular restaurants and trendy pubs (most with internet access/Wifi) to choose from and spiral mall for shopping. Supermaxi (the grocery store) is a short walking distance (only an 8 block walk), as well as the local University.

Quito is a very noisy, overwhelming city. If you are looking for and apartment to come home to after a long day that is quiet, peaceful and safe, you have found it.

Sincerely.

Pilar de Veintemilla

Perfect Apartment & Location for Touring Quito!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was only surpassed by the communication and care provided by the owner! You could not choose a better location for "doing" Quito. Easy transportation to Centro or anywhere, with easy walking to Plaza Foch area where we found the best food we had in Ecuador at Miskay - a new restaurant. The 24/7 security guards were helpful and friendly as well. The apartment has everything you need - great washer/dryer and kitchen! Also extras like more towels and sheets if you need them. It was so comfortable and a great place to return after a day of museums, etc. We cannot think of a single thing we would change about this lovely place. Strongly recommend it!

We will be back in 2018

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa de Pilar for two months this year. It was our second time, we already have it reserved for January-March in 2018. We love everything about the apartment, and we love everything about the location. We appreciate the attention to details that is given to the kitchen. Any type of serving platters, cookware, beautiful dishes, a spice rack, storage containers, any type of cooking utensil you might need to prepare a great meal. The appliances are top quality. We love that we have Netflix available to us during our down time. I would recommend this apartment to anyone. Even if you are in Quito only a short time, this is the place to stay. I think the rates are very reasonable, and you will not find another place as modern and comfortable in Quito. Believe me, I have looked.

Filthy

  • 1 of 5

Promised myself to wait prior to writing this review; a cooling down period of sorts. After two months, I'm ready........

As is common, we arrived Quito LATE in the night. Everything went according to plan, driver provided by property owner met us according to plan, very nice man, etc... Checked into unit and SURPRISE, unit was absolutely filthy. Wet towels laying about, beds were stripped, sink full of dirty dishes, bathrooms were gross, etc.. Frantcally tried to reach landlord, no luck. Attempted to secure a hotel, no luck. Rummaged around unit looking for clean sheets, found a few. Made beds and settled in for a long sleepless night.

Contacted owner, who would "attempt" to have someone clean unit with no commitment of when that may be. Following day, late afternoon, cleaners show up. Cleaned until late evening (roughly 7:30pm).

That evening, we started to cook a very late dinner, pots were filthy and stove / cooktop only partially functional (could only use single burner OR stove, not both). Reported new issues to owner, never resolved.

With a very restrictive diet, a fully functional kitchen is a requirement when we travel. After "trying" to make it work, we finally left early and secured other accommodations. No sorry, offer of refund, or even an acknowledgement that everything didn't go as planned. Would definitely NOT RECOMEND.

Great Apartment, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best, perhaps THE best apartment we have ever stayed at and we've been travelling and renting a lot for the last 10 years. Everything, the design and layout, the furnishings are high end, and it is supremely well maintained. The location really is perfect or at least it was for us. We like to walk. It was an easy half hour walk to historic centro and a 10 minute walk to Plaza Mariscal Foch. Although we never managed to meet Pilar, the owner, we felt she treated us as a friend. One night when there was a small tremblor that we didn't even feel, she did and emailed us to make sure we were okay. Security was never an issue, with 24/7 guards at the front entrance and a keycard for the elevator. One hint: don't forget to go to the rooftop terrace for a beautiful view of Quito, and then go up again at night. We would stay again in an instant.

We cannot say enough good things about this incredible apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is by far the nicest place we have stayed in Ecuador. We have been coming to Ecuador for 25 years, so we know of what we speak. To begin with, it is beautifully decorated, spacious, and sun-lit. The kitchen has every appliance you would find in your own home. We were able to cook and serve fabulous meals, thanks to all the utensils, pots and pans, beautiful dishes, glasses, table cloths etc. The beds were so comfortable, excellent quality sheets and pillows and the bath towels were 1st class. Hot water was always there, which is rare in Ecuador. It was so quiet at night, we actually wondered if anyone else lived in the building. You can take the elevator to the 10th floor terrace and get a 360 degree view of Quito. Spectacular, day or night! When making our selection of a place to stay in Quito, I was skeptical of the photos and the list of amenities, it sounded too good to be true. Pilar assured me it was even better than it appeared to be, and it was!!!! We never for one minute felt anything but safe and secure in this apartment. Loved having a convenience store right next door. We were so close to shopping, spectacular parks and museums, we were never at a loss for things to do. We have already made reservations for a two-month stay next year, and might even stay three months. We love the apartment and encourage anyone planning a stay in Quito, to give it a try. You will not be disappointed. We were there February and March, 2016.
